ONE’s Digital Twin R&D Innovation shortlisted for sustainability award
Posted: 7 September 2022
ONE is thrilled to be shortlisted for the ‘Best Carbon Monitoring Tool’ at the 2022 Building Innovation Awards.
Using the latest technology to drive sustainable outcomes is central to the company’s Sustainability Strategy, ensuring that the team provides clients with the best opportunity to understand their energy use, benchmark, minimise performance gaps and reduce ongoing costs.
The innovative solution uses a Digital Twin concept and combines Building Information Modelling (BIM) and the Internet of Things (IoT). It has fully configurable tools that visually display real time data within the 3D model environment to enable the efficient management of modern built environments. These technologies are leveraged by ONE’s Low Carbon Consultants within Building Services (MEP), with digital Information Management specialists also within the company’s Digital Estates team.
ONE’s understanding of these technologies enables them to inform clients at an early stage, support the specification, development, handover and ongoing monitoring of digital energy management solutions.
Jason Whittall, Director of Digital at ONE Creative environments, said: “Sustainability and innovation are central to ONE, and we have been fortunate to be in a position to build upon our existing ground breaking projects to undertake further R&D into the practical implementation of digital twin technology, so we are proud to be shortlisted for this prestigious award.”
“You cannot manage what you cannot measure and our advanced algorithms and energy dashboards read raw energy data and convert it into meaningful information. e.g. for electricity sensors: consumption in kWh, £/p and tCO2e. This real-time data, which is instantly understandable and actionable, can then be used to drive many benefits: decarbonisation, enhanced well-being, compliance, reduced risk and cost for our clients.”
“Congratulations to all finalists and we look forward to seeing you at the awards ceremony.”
